Scalp MicroPigmentation SMP Pigments and MRI

Hypothetical question: would it be safe for someone who had SMP done to undergo an MRI test? I thought most tattoo inks contain metal and thus, anyone with a tattoo could not get an MRI test. Just wondering if this also applies to SMP?

SMP is a form of tattoo.  Tattoo pigment or SMP pigments may contain iron oxide.  Iron oxide can theoretically interfere with MRI tests.

  1. I am surprised with this answer, which I had previously assumed was more theoretical than actual. Obviously in must relate only to MRIs of the tattooed areas, in this case the scalp/head, correct?
